ARTIST PROFILE

Fire! with Oren Ambarchi

Fire! are a trio with members drawn from three very different groups: The Thing, Tape, and Wildbirds and Peacedrums: Mats Gustafsson, saxophones, Fender Rhodes and live electronics; Johan Berthling, bass, guitar, organ; Andreas Werliin, drums and percussion.

Oren Ambarchi is a multi-instrumentalist who in major plays electric guitar and drums, with longstanding interests in transcending conventional instrumental approaches. He has made some fine recordings for solo guitar and electronics, notably on the Touch label,  but may be better known in some circles for his collaborations with ‘doom drone’ band Sunn 0))), and spinoff trios Burial Chamber and Gravetemple. He was born in Sydney, Australia in 1969.
